My self-summary
I am an eccentric (without being insane). I am an introvert (without being antisocial). I am intelligent (without being arrogant). I am a techie (without being a social reject). I am open-minded (without being acquiescent).

I love Dogs. In fact, I am somewhat like a Dog. I am extremely loyal. I’m always up for a car ride. I eat the same thing out of a can everyday. I’m happy to lay on the couch with you for hours. And I hump your leg at the most inappropriate times.

I'm pretty geeky but still physically active. I'm not much of a party person. I like dining, movies, hiking, mountain bike, dogs, reading, computers, television, people watching.

I’m a down-to-earth guy, but I can dress up and go to the theater. Or we can put the boots on and go hiking or biking. Or we can put on the fuzzy slippers and watch a movie. But not all three the same day.

I am somewhat introverted, shy around new people, but the life of the party amongst friends. If left to my own devices, I am a homebody, but I love to go out and do things with others - whether that's out on the town or something outdoors.

I occasionally dabble in hobbies. I like experimenting with crafts. I usually try something once and am satisfied. It is about learning and to see if I can do it. I have an artistic talent but not a real desire towards “craft obsession“. I am currently experimenting with roasting coffee beans at home, with a hot air popcorn popper, of all things. But I have dabble in oil painting, watercolor, computer graphics arts paintshop, homebrew, jewelry, bonsai trees, leather, a lot of stuff in wood - I am handy with power tools.

I am honest, easygoing, and a little nerdy.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am tall. And most of my friends say I look stern the first time they met me. I’m not, it’s just that I'm reserved until I get to know someone, and, I guess it shows on my face.

fresh fruit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
~ The economic meltdown. ~ The causes, evolution and repercussions there of.

~ Online dating. ~ I find online dating very exhausting. It reminds me of a line from the movie "The Naked Gun 2½" ...
It's like having sex. It's a painstaking and arduous task that seems to go on and on forever, and just when you think things are going your way, nothing happens. - Lt. Frank Drebin
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking or getting take out, watching a movie or dvds, reading, chatting with friends, wondering what other activities are out there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a Morning person.

I watch too much TV.

I hate zombies, you should hate zombies too.

I am extremely honest, I expect honesty. I am extremely loyal, I expect loyalty.

Education: Environmental Biology; Finance. go figure?
